Having developed a healthy passion for travel on family trips, with highlights including a white-water rafting expedition through the Grand Canyon and snorkeling with sharks in Fiji, I set out for a nine month long trip around Southeast Asia and Australasia. Living in Bangkok for three months while teaching English inspired my love for the region (and especially the cuisine), which was then reinforced by subsequent travels through Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Indonesia.
Following a degree in geography at the University of Nottingham, I left England again for the French Alps and Sardinia to work in hotels, before following my desire to specialise in tailor-made travel. Having worked with Audley in Southeast Asia for five years, I discovered Japan for the first time as an Audley client would, on an extended research trip to cover many of the highlights of this fascinatingly unique destination.

I'll never forget when…
Kalimantan, the Indonesian part of Borneo, was a new destination for me and a true highlight of my recent Audley trip. Exploring the rivers of the Tanjung Puting National Park by private Klotok boat was incredibly peaceful and offered the chance to see of a huge variety of wildlife, including Proboscis monkeys, hornbills and crocodiles. Close encounters with a number of wild orang-utans were unforgettable, as was the feeling of real adventure that can be increasingly hard to find.
